The finalists for the 2020 Amazon everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards have been announced. Against the backdrop of the global COVID-19 crisis, which has demonstrated the critical role the industry plays in keeping the world moving, the finalists represent 60 of the most outstanding individuals working in transport and logistics.
From freight and rail to retail and air transport, the finalists showcase how women hold crucial positions in transport and logistics, demonstrating progression, accomplishment, increasing avenues of opportunity within the industry and redefining a sector that has long been viewed as male-dominated.
Everywoman is an organisation committed to the advancement of women in business.
Since the inception of the awards 13 years ago, more women have taken up senior roles in transport and logistics, but still account for just 20% of the overall workforce, showing that there is more work to be done to attract female talent to the sector.
The awards will recognise two winners per category; one successful industry “Leader” and one individual at any stage in their career that is going “Above and Beyond” for their business. The awards will also have a global reach with the introduction of a new International Inspiration Award.
Maxine Benson MBE, co-founder of everywoman, said: “We are thrilled to announce the finalists for the 2020 Amazon everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards. With the coronavirus outbreak shining a spotlight on how crucial our transport and logistics sector is, celebrating role models and creating a strong pipeline of female talent is more important now than ever before. At an uncertain time, it is clear that long-term risk management and innovation in problem-solving will be vital to ensure the future of the industry and these are skills that show marked improvement within companies where women fill leadership roles.”
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in London on 6 October 2020 at Grosvenor House London.
